with coffee spoons

The Spoon Theory by Christine Miserandino is an excellent, I mean truly excellent essay about “what it’s like to live with sickness or disability”. While reading it, I thought of T.S. Eliot’s Prufrock measuring out life with coffee spoons.

The essay is linked through But you Don’t Look Sick, (oh another great name) which I just discovered was founded by Ms. Miserandino. Well done Ms. Miserandino!

For anyone who is interested in knowing what it is like to live without the luxury of good health in a world which presumes all are well (or well enough), I offer more words from the poet as advice. Do not ask what is it. Let us go and make our visit. Read the essay.
